Marlene Dietrich Biography in English

Marlene Dietrich Biography in English Marie Magdalene Dietrich, known by her stage name Marlene Dietrich (Berlin, December 27, 1901 - Paris, May 6, 1992), was a German actress and singer who also adopted the American nationality. It is considered one of the most eminent myths of the seventh Art, and also as the ninth best female star of all time according to the American Film Institute. He was born in Germany, in the district of Rote Insel in the town of Schöneberg, which in 1920 was annexed to Berlin. His family was middle class well-off. His parents were Louis Erich Otto Dietrich (1867-1908), police lieutenant, and Wilhelmine Elisabeth Josephine Felsing (1876-1945), who belonged to a saga of jewelers and watchmakers. He had an older sister named Elisabeth (1900-1973), from whom he distanced himself at maturity knowing that he had had some dealings with the military and officials of the Nazi regime. The two sisters had an education Prussian, careful and strict, which included learning French. The father died in 1907, the mother remarried nine years later with a friend of her late husband, Eduard von Losch, an aristocrat and soldier; but this one died shortly afterwards by wounds suffered during the First World War. The young Marie Magdalene expressed interest in fame and entertainment from childhood. At the age of 11 he was already called "Marlene" (a fusion of his two names) and in his adolescence he became interested in poetry and theater. He learned to play the violin, but could not pursue it professionally because of a wrist injury. He worked in an orchestra that animated the projections of silent films; briefly, she was fired a few weeks later. The licentious and effervescent Berlin before Hitler, set in nightclubs and famous in Europe for its sexual freedom and the rise of transvestism, marked the character of the young Marlene and helps explain her future androgyny in dress and an intimate life uninhibited as much with men as with women. Dietrich made his official film debut in 1923, with a fleeting appearance in The Little Napoleon, although historians insist that she had appeared as an extra in several German films since 1919. Marlene Dietrich achieved stardom by co-starring with the then-famous Emil Jannings the first European sound film, The Blue Angel (1930), under the direction of Josef von Sternberg. Her daring role as the cabaret singer Lola-Lola that leads to the doom of a respectable professor caused an international sensation; especially because he sang insinuating lyrics exhibiting his thighs at a time when commercial cinema was very pacato and more or less erotic films circulated only clandestinely. In 1933 the blue angel would be banned in Germany by the Nazi regime. Marlene had to learn English and refine her appearance. He transformed his robust figure into slender, for which he lost 15 kilos; He waxed his eyebrows like Greta Garbo and -account- extracted the wisdom teeth in pursuit of a more angular facial oval. She learned makeup tricks and tried the gestures that favored her most on screen. Once the myth was established, Dietrich was in part tied to that image that gave him fame and he would live his whole life in pursuit of the continuous refinement of his enigmatic appearance, to which his exotic and ambiguous roles contributed, as would happen with Thirst for evil. his friend Orson Welles, where at age 57 he offered an iconic interpretation. In 1941, during World War II, Dietrich was one of the first stars to collect US war bonds, as well as entertain US troops on the war front, and was well known for his strong political convictions. She was a firm anti-Nazi who despised the anti-Semitic policies of her time. As Marlene Dietrich went into adulthood, lost hook as an erotic claim against the thrust of younger actresses. Dietrich died peacefully on May 6, 1992, at age 90, in Paris. His funeral ceremony was held in the church of La Madeleine in Paris before 3500 mourners and a crowd outside the temple. Her body, covered with a flag of the United States, was sent to Berlin where she was buried in the Berlin-Schöneberg municipal cemetery, her birthplace. Fuente: .
